This is a hidden gem...the pictures don't do it justice! It's right on the beach, has amazing views, a refurbished pool, clean and spacious rooms, and the staff is friendly and accommodating! It's also cheaper than almost all other places on the island, and is close to town and the night market by Muri beach. Great place to stay!!

We stayed at Kiikii overnight. Owners organised airport transfers which was appreciated. They drove us to get dinner as it was late at night and offered a lift into town the next day. Rooms was basic but very clean. They are working hard to improve rooms and I'm sure the hotel will be great when completed. Staff were very friendly.

Just an over night stay here as our plane got in very late. They forgot to pick us up from the airport which was frustrating but an easy fix. The room was clean but very basic, no hot water at all so none of us could shower, the toilet system had to be manually filled so we could flush it....

The Kiikii Motel situated in Upper Tupapa is the most relaxing place to be on Rarotonga. The fresh breeze from the beach is amazingly fresh. The swimming pool is incredibly large and soothing. The Management and Staff are amazingly friendly and welcoming. The Kiikii Motel has affordable prices that everyone; guests or our local people can afford to enjoy the...

The KiiKii Motel is such a wonderful place. It doesn't look like much from the road but it was absolutely a great little place to call home. The staff was so caring and sweet. Steven at the front and Marty the house keeper bent over backwards to make everyone feel totally at home - because it was our home. The...

I booked for a week to take advantage of the discount price of $40 per night. I was a bit apprehensive but it suited me well. Spacious,with my own kitchen, dining and bedroom. Yes it was very tired, probably hasnt been renovated since the 70's but it had everything I wanted and I thought it was very good value. I...
